The summers are getting hotter. Parts of the world that are historically cooler in the summer months are experiencing record temperatures, and even heatwaves. A heatwave is defined as three or more consecutive days where the temperature is above 95 degrees. It helps to know which clothing is best to wear if you live in one of these hot pockets of the earth.
Long Sleeves on a Sunny Day?
We all know the Middle East is super hot. We also see that the people who live there keep their bodies sheltered from the sun. That’s very important. Long-sleeve, loose-fitting clothing is a must to protect the skin from damage. Make sure the clothes are made of a breathable material. Many outdoor clothing shops carry brands that are fashionable and practical.
If you’re going to be in the sun and heat for any amount of time, wear a wide-brim hat. Keep the heat from your face, neck and shoulders. Sure. You’re head is going to sweat like crazy, so find some shade, take the hat off, and give your noggin a little breeze. Hats are a big part of the fashion industry, so you should have no problem finding one that looks good and does its job.
Materials That Wick and Breathe
Outdoor clothing is becoming much more fashionable, so hit your favorite outdoors and sporting goods store and do some shopping. Look for materials that wick sweat and allow your body to breath. Some top brands that offer fashion designs and practical qualities are Columbia, The North Face, and Royal Robin.
If you prefer bargain shopping, many of the sporting goods stores have house brands that look and do just as good as the big name brands.
